I did something unusual today. I drove home from work without having the radio switched on. And consequently, realised I could hear a lot of things…
…the whirring of the engine.
…the squeaky sound when I hit the brakes.
…the whooshing of cars driving past.
…the clickety-click of the indicator.
…the sound of my own breath.
…the hum of the heater.
…the sound of tyres on the wet road.
…the difference between the sounds of a truck versus a small car versus a four-wheel drive.
…the chirping of birds on a quieter street.
…the unusual sound when you hit grooves on the road.
…the voices in my head.
Okay. So not really voices but the occasional thoughts that were running through my head.
It’s funny though what the result of a headache can be. You actually listen to things around you. And despite doing the same thing every single day, it can suddenly be seen in a whole new light!
Until next time,
